Sums it up good.

Plus ill add to that - looking at it now, this was a good time to bring a new coach in. After a half season, things are going to start fresh for all 30 teams, with the new alignment, so there will be a bit of an adjustment period for any team.

Don't discount the fact that AV knows Detroit and Columbus better then a majority of the coaches in the East, and he understands the rigors of travel. That will count for something.
